How I print and sell photos

All photos are printed-to-order in my home studio on a Canon Pro 10, using archival quality paper and ink. With a little care, these prints will last for more than 100 years.

For protection during shipping, each photo is sealed in a plastic sleeve, then placed inside a bubble mailer, and then the bubble mailer is sealed inside a narrow cardboard mailer for maximum protection.

Prints are mailed twice per week. For shipping destinations here in the U.S., it takes an average of 10 days from the time you make your order to receive it in the mail. For international orders, it takes longer. How much longer depends on which parts of the world are still working in the current pandemic-driven econopocalypse.

At the moment, I’m not limiting the number of prints per photo or numbering the prints, mostly because that sort of marketing-driven artificial scarcity makes my inner socialist want to start a fire. (The fine art world, in particular, is filled with this sort of 20th Century beanie baby thinking). The miracle of personal publishing technology means that I can print an almost infinite number of professional-grade, archival-quality prints right from my home. And I intend to take full advantage of it.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your return / refund policy?

If you’re not happy with the quality of your print, simply email me within 7 days of receiving it and I’ll refund your money in full.

What payment methods do you accept?

I accept direct credit card payments through Stripe, and I also accept PayPal payments as well.

How do I know my financial info is safe?

None of your credit card data is ever stored on my site. I use Stripe for credit card processing. Stripe is an industry standard for processing payments, and they take care of all the nitty gritty security issues in processing and storing your credit card data. It’s similar with PayPal — they handle the processing and storage of your payment info. In both cases, the only order information I retain is your shipping address, email, phone number, and what you purchased.

What is your privacy policy?

I retain as little of your information as possible (see above for financial data). I will never sell your purchase data or personal info to anyone. A handful of third-party services receive limited information to help me administer my business. They are as follows:

* I use Google Analytics to track visitors to my website and see which pages are popular, where visitors are clicking from, etc.

* I use a Facebook pixel to run targeted ads on Facebook and Instagram for my print store. I don’t like Facebook and am conflicted about using it in this way, but there’s no question that it helps with sales.

* I use MailChimp to send my weekly newsletter to subscribers but only if you explicitly sign up for the newsletter. (I won’t add you to my newsletter without your permission). I also use MailChimp as a basic CRM, meaning that it collects info on who is buying what, who is returning customer, etc.
